Georgia Fox, Bangalow

I would urge anyone caught up in the high-speed police pursuit through the streets of Byron last Wednesday morning to file a formal complaint with the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission.

To chase a car full of joyriders into a busy, traffi-congested holiday village is totally irresponsible. It’s an absolute miracle no-one was killed. I was overtaken by the Mercedes and at least five police cars between St Finbarr’s and The General Store, all travelling at around 100km/h, in my estimate.

To find out the following day it was all over a stolen car, with inexperienced young teenagers at the wheel, was even more shocking than the incident itself. So much risk to the public. What happened to Skye’s Law?
